Code Connection

For this project spotlight, Cushing found Burnham!

Questions came up at Cushing on a project regarding ADA (American Disabilities Act) sign display and placement requirements. Cushing marketing connected with Burnham’s code compliance team for answers and about content partnership possibilities. Both companies saw an opportunity to educate, share business opportunities, and collaborate on a Lunch & Learn series.

Project Possibilities

Taking the lead on the privacy film project?

Meet Jon Kovar-Tooke, a business analyst at Burnham. Prior to joining the team, his background has been in a technical capacity, from telecom to navigational industries. On the decision to install window frosting:

“We knew we wanted to change things up, and while touring Cushing and seeing all the different finished projects for their clients, we saw a lot of possible directions we could go.”

The creative catalyst was in place!
Window Dressing

With fresh ideas about window frosting, Burnham engaged their design and marketing consultant, to create some mock-ups.

In terms of direction and to showcase their background in the building industry, AWD Marketing Communications suggested artwork featuring a cityscape of Burnham clients, complete with construction cranes. The final touch on the creative is the Burnham logo at the base of the skyline.

“We would like to highlight Michelle Ward as a Customer Service Hero. She worked with Jon and gave a ton of great feedback, helped with the smaller details of the piece and made us feel confident about the project!”
Burnham Project Goals
This install had to accomplish two primary objectives.

Product Placement

Samples of 3M Dusted Crystal were couriered to the Burnham office. It provided an opportunity to see how the product would appear on windows. Afterward, a Cushing representative conducted a site survey for measurements and toured the office to ensure materials would sync with their office interiors. With predominantly white and clear frosting used, Burnham added a splash of orange to match their logo.

The small upgrade made a world of difference!

“The skyline privacy film exceeded what we envisioned. I’m still blown away at the level of detail they were able to cut out and install onto the window, so carefully. Turnaround time was great, especially with the level of detail we requested. We’ve found a new graphics and printing partner in Cushing, we can grow with, and a valued partner.”
“Both company cultures align so closely. Very professional and genuine people with a focus on continuous learning and solving project challenges by taking a look from different perspectives. I’ve enjoyed the iterations our teams go through and new ideas that pop up along the way, it’s refreshing.”
